Personal message

Desireé has leukemia which is a cancer of the blood. The word invokes images of loss ~ Hair loss ~ Weight loss ~ Energy loss. It is an aggressive, deadly cancer. There is a possibility of remission after receiving extensive chemotherapy... maybe. But remission can end - today, next week, next month, next year. How much time is there really left?

Desireé needs a stem cell transplant in order to get better. Only 30 percent of patients needing a transplant find a match among family members, 70 percent of patients must rely on volunteer bone marrow and blood stem cell donors who have joined one of the worldwide donor registries. Luckily we have found a suitable donor but now we need pay for the procedure since the medical aid will not.

Desireé has spent the better part of 40 years in service of education. She has helped shape the lives of young learners across the country. Always willing to take on additional projects e.g. HIV counselling; working with special needs to children to facilitate learning; developing programs to uplift the community. In her spare time she would offer extra classes in support of learners trying to achieve good grades at school. 

After being retrenched Desireé spent her time educating learners about CPR and water safety. Often visiting up to 15 schools per month and providing demonstrations to over 3000 learners. 

We are trying to raise the money for the stem cell transplant and associated hospital costs. But we really do need your help. We can't save her without your support.

Any funds raised above our target will be donated to charities within the Paarl community.

My Mom has cancer ~ leukemia. She needs a stem cell transplant but the medical aid has not approved the procedure due to her age. We (her children) are taking up her cause to raise the necessary funds for the stem cell transplant and associated hospital costs.
